Not crazy at all....when you look at the amount of pro bowlers that played for that Miami squad there is no reason they should have lost- even to an excellent Ohio State team. I would argue that you are wearing scarlet colored lenses. Upsets happen (I.e. last year msu vs Ohio State) in college football. The reason why that game was so special was that an underdog knocked the 2 year undeafeted consensus #1 team in college football off of its perch. The buckeyes were a better team that day but was not a better team overall.
I did my best lol
I mentioned this same thing in another post but got blasted for this comparison. Good coaches and recruiters but mediocre when It counts.
Who recruited those players? John cooper. A good recruiter who won games but not when I counted. Sadly, that is Thad Matta's legacy right now.
Sadly, he was never going to be a starter.
So do we get helmet stickers for the posts created prior to the change....lol
You could have said the same thing when cooper was coaching the football team. Not advocating firing Thad but there is always a good coach out there waiting.
Joey Bosa, William Fuller (WR ND), Vonn Bell, Scoobie Wright (OLB AZ), Kevin Hogan (QB Stanford), Cyrus Jones (CB Alabama), Alex Lewis (OT Nebraska), Jalin Marshall, Max Turek (C USC), Marquez North (WR TN). 1 DT, 3 WRs, 1 Qb, 1 Safety, 1CB, 1 OT, 1 Center, 1 OLB.
No as an Ohio state fan I realize how difficult it must be to coach as expectations are always on the rise.
I think Thad is comparable to John Cooper. Some people forget that the football team was not all that good for a pretty good length of time. Cooper recruited well and mostly fielded good to great teams that somehow always underachieved. It cannot be argued that cooper raised football at OSU to new heights. However, it was not good enough. Same with Thad when you are at a place like Ohio state expectations are always on the rise and you have to be able to meet them. I just feel that we have reached our ceiling under Matta.
Win one for The Land! Let's go Cavs!
Here for you hove
I think we get worse....
